Polocrosse: Lacrosse on Horseback…

Think about the game of lacrosse. Now think about horseback riding. When you combine them you get Polocrosse!

Some say Polocrosse is the most relaxed horse sport. To us, it just looks like a whole lot of fun! As you may have assumed, the game is indeed a mix of polo and lacrosse:

Polocrosse is a team sport that is played all over the world. It is a combination of polo and lacrosse. It is played outside, on a field (the pitch), on horseback. Each rider uses a cane or fibreglass stick to which is attached a racquet head with a loose, thread net, in which the ball is carried.
